There is a revolution

under way to bring

renewable resources to

Native American

people. Led by modern-

day warrior Henry Red Cloud, a direct fifth generation descendent of Red Cloud, the famous Lakota war chief, and Trees, Water & People (TWP), inroads are being made one home and one business at a time.

Count among its most recent advances a two-kilowatt photovoltaic array installed in October at KILI Radio, a public radio station serving the Lakota people of the Pine Ridge, Cheyenne River and Rosebud reservations. The solar-power system was donated by Namasté Solar, while the manpower was provided by Red Cloud’s company, Lakota Solar Enterprises (LSE) and his Red Cloud Renewable Energy Center (RCREC). Count among the ranks of volunteers on site for the installation seven students from the Shoshone Bannock, Oglala Lakota, Cheyenne River Sioux, and Northern Cheyenne tribes—solar warriors in training at the RCREC.

The Magnum Energy

team has been excited

to see the Red Cloud

Renewable Energy

Center come to life.

The nonprofit venture,

begun by Lakota Henry

Red Cloud, is located

on the Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota and is dedicated to changing the world through renewable energy education and development. Sensata was pleased to support this effort through a donation of Magnum Energy inverter/chargers, interconnection system equipment, and accessories that will be used in their training workshops as part of their mobile solar stations.  See the rest here!

Cloud's tree

planting plan

 

PINE RIDGE

RESERVATION – For

the past five years,

Henry Red Cloud has

been planting trees.

We’ve had a number of

fires throughout the

reservation. Some fires were sparked by lightening, but most of the fires that have taken ruin to the Pine Ridge reservation are due to negligence or even arson.

Recently, the butte near the reservation’s KILI Radio station caught fire. The entire hill and trees were consumed by fire. Now when you look that the butte, all you’ll see is a bunch of withered colored trees. What was once a beautiful hill covered by Ponderosa pine, providing a beautiful landscape, is now a charred hill.  Read the rest here!

DOWN a dirt track on

South Dakota’s bucolic

Pine Ridge Reservation,

Henry Red Cloud is

working out a plan to

help Native and

indigenous communities

around the world make

their own electricity.

Through his Red Cloud Renewable Energy Centre, Red Cloud hopes to one day supply all 562 federally recognised tribes in the US, and eventually further afield, with cheap electricity from solar farms and panel-mounted, mobile trailer power banks. Read the rest here!
